the bajus,,,

Salam all...

Hehhehe I see byk yg really want to know my baju2.... lambat bah ah c Bride ani (I know~) It took me sometime to organise all my pictures (from my very own camera) into the right folders.. yes, I am that fussy, different pics shud go to different folders. Sorry again.. but what I'm about to share with you all now prolly would entice everyone. Hehehe it's on how I come up with making my own baju (except for Sanding) rather than renting them all out. Now for those yang sudah survey sana sini, you all know the basic price for renting out baju songket / nikah sepasang starts with a minimum price of $350.. if a couple decided to have 1 function saja, then by all means... do this :) But me, well..~ had to really calculate and manage by budget well.

1. The Nikah attire, since it's all white.. I figure, I may have it for me own.. kegunaan masa depan (say, official ceremonies?) What I had in mind was to create a chiffon baju kurung with white and silver beads...and lace pun I want yg simple one saja.. all white~ not creamish white.. but white, white.. Tpi entah somehow, the time when I was looking for d chiffon... sana sini takde~ hence i ended up buying a package deal for lace and satin sepsg (bride and groom) @ Euro Moda in K.L. I made mine to just a simple baju kurung fesyen design.. at least, the price sewing it was cheap had to pay extra for the kain sja cos I had to ask my tailor to do lace patching.. pun it turn out alright :) :)

2. The Berbedak attire : the thought of wearing traditional Brunei Malay attire for this event, I was like, jgn th tabal2 material bajunya ani... if sewa saja possible around $350 min. (for baju) + the attire lagi.. mau2 jua $600 jdinya right? So I thought, what if I can get everything below $350... get a plain kain, buat beadings and I can wear it for a function or apa nanti kan... and since, my darling hubby wants a blue jongsarat with gold threads (bepakan amas) Jaaadinyaaaa.... behold~

This was, I must say, 'last minute' plan... the initial plan was to wear the same baju I've worn for Muleh 7 for Berbedak event, BUT since sayang jua kain untuk hantaran atu inda d jahit kan? (with Raya coming and all) So just hantar kedai.. design it in such a way that it doesn't appear simple.. nor will it appear too fancy. Karang mcm christmas tree susah jua tu! and.. yeh, the price of my own baju + rental of accessories < rental of baju songket ONLY (so u see how much I saved kan?)

3. Sanding attire.. both darling Hubby and I wanted to wear original songket bunga tabur with silver threads. Yes.. it was pretty tiresome scouting for the actual blood red songket with silver threads but the end result was tiptop. We had ours custommade to our designs at KHJ Bridal Boutique nda nyasal lh mbuat disana... :) Modern & classic design was our theme..with the material of just PURE songket with silver beadings... simple but elegant at an affordable price. *thumbsup*

4. Muleh 7 Attire.. bought it at the same place where I bought my nikah attire. package too! harga kain + tailoring (tmpt biasa saja) + rental of sinjang and dastar = rental of songket (both male and female) with accessories. not much difference here.. but at least we get to keep the attire kan. Plus if we were to send it over @ any bridal boutiques gerenti the price would be like rental of 2 songket sets.. so yeh, jahit d kadai biasa saja.. :D I trust my tailor.. cost us just 20% off the normal price if we were to send our attire @ a local bridal shop.. :D :D :D pic of the baju? hahaha nanti th I upload, silly me to forget capturing the picture of this one *lol*
